The Prospectors are a team of KND operatives that are recruited from active KND sectors. Often working outside of normal KND rules and regulations, The Prospectors are often getting into trouble.
Appearing in several universes, the teams usually consist of having Nolan York, Josh Puncture and Carol Pariuhs as founding members and high casualty rates.
The team was founded by Numbuh 2030, Nolan York, to help show that kids with disabilities can be just as good as regular Sectors, if not better. The Prospectors are usually called in to handle the more dangerous assignments that usually end with someone getting hurt. Because of this the teams roster is in constant flux, with people quitting the team or getting prematurely decommissioned. The team is best known for the Buster Affair and Operation V.O.L.C.A.N.O.
After many missions and hard hitting casualties, the team began to fall apart. After the events of 'Ethics', most operatives in The Prospectors were either deceased, quit, on the run for the KND or decommissioned.
As of the events of Legend of the Eight Firstborn the team has gone defunct. After Firstborn, Nolan York returned to the Kids Next Door and reinstated The Prospectors, recruiting several former members and new ones including his girlfriend Danika Anderson.

The Prospectors are one of the few groups that remain as a part of the KND as shown in the story 'KND: Civil War'. With the low amount of operatives, The Prospectors are given the task of running the Moon Base while also providing tactical support for Numbuh 362.
